Manchester City head east?

Thaksin's plaything Manchester City could be heading to these shores come the end of the English season. A report on Yahoo (yeah, I know) quotes a director as saying they hope to play the Singapore national side as part of a mini tour.

Other possible destinations include Hong Kong, Macau, Jakarta and Kuala Lumpur.

Don't hold your breath lah!

Far be it for a wizzened old git like me to get too excited but it would be nice to see Manchester City here. Not because I have any soft spot for the team that gave the world inflatable bananas but the chance of meeting chewing the fat with Sven would be to good to pass up.

A couple of weeks back I spoke with Kurnia Sandy who was one of 20 Indonesian players who spent a couple of years at Sampdoria back in 1994. It just so happened the Italian side were then coached by the Swede and I bet you a dollar to the gold reserves of a minor Saudi princess he has not been asked 'What did you think of Kurniawan Dwi Yulianto?' for a long time!
